James Neill is the International Director at the GL Education Group.
James studied physics at Nottingham University, and returned to study a PGCE. He taught physics and science in Nottingham before moving further afield to London and then Thailand. He has also been an examiner for AQA physics examinations.
Upon leaving teaching, James joined Pearson Edexcel. Initially based in England, James then moved to the UAE where he worked with schools and stakeholders in the Middle East to support curriculum development and vocational courses as well as supporting teachers in using data and technology to raise attainment.
James has also worked with organisations to develop admissions tests for university courses, as well as developing online assessment solutions for professional organisations.
The move to GL Education was a natural way to bring together his teaching and consultative strengths where he is responsible for the international strategy as the company continues its rapid growth.
Schools around the world, regardless of location or context, are seeking answers to the challenges of ensuring students reach their full potential and being able to explain to their stakeholders the value of the teaching that they carry out.
James currently lives in London.
